I got my L1 visa in 2010 October and came to US on Nov, 2010 and stayed still Nov, 2013.
My company applied L1 extension for me in Nov 2013 but my exntension got denied and I went back to India
in Dec 2013.
My company applied Fresh H1 for me in Apr 2014 and I got selected in lottery and came to Us in H1 B on Apr 2015
Please let me know the below
- Whether my L1 period will also be considered in my Fresh H1 and I can stay only 3 years in H1 ? (Total L1 + H1 = 6 years )
- Whether my clock will be reset as I stayed outsided US for one year from (Dec 2013 - Apr 2015) and I can use my H1 for complete 6 years irrespective of the period of stay in L1 ?
